Indifference is my worst nightmare and frustration.

I am really sorry for you, dear readers, if you feel frustrated when you discover my Blog. I admit  my Blog it is not really popular on the Net, is not a Twitter trending topic, is not at least a one million Facebook followers account and other amenities like these. If you wish and like to be part of a "quantity" trend, well, absolutely forget my Blog and switch on another kind of Blog. 

On the other side it is highly probable that the small numbers of readers of my Blog have observed I have been keeping in silence for more than one month. I used to post at least 3 or 4 times per month, since this Blog was born. But lately, as you already know, I didn't post anything since the last February, 13.

Well, there are various reasons because I didn't write any comments in the last five weeks. Some are pretty personal and other are, as I can say, of professional frustration. I mean as "professional frustration" the effort coming from the unpaid job to have some deep reflections about the world all we are living in.

I don't know you but lately I feel really frustrated about what is happening in the world. My last post talking about President Barack Obama it is probably enough indicative about my general feelings. Of course the US President it is just the top of the iceberg and, for sure, he is not responsible of my frustrations. Frustrations come from the general depressed state of world economy (that is influencing my personal economy of course), Syrian civil war, Iran and North Korea nuclear plans, Europe progressive and constant ageing, the always present Human Rights violations by Chinese government, Putin coming back again in Russia, a strong political Right wind that more than a wind it seems a twister or, worst, a hurricane. I could write more, but it would be useless, so better to stop adding new items on this "black list". I imagine anybody of us could write a "black list" of things frustrating his/her personal life. Could this help us to solve our problems? No, for sure, it would be only a mere enunciation of facts and nothing more.

By the way, my frustrations are the reason because I decided I have nothing to say. I wondered: why to write on something almost nobody is interest? Why to write for a so small number of readers? Why write for people never posting a comment to my posts? 

Since I didn't get the answers, the only decision I was able to take was to forget to write in my Blog. But life, for that strange way that only life has got, I mean "a sense of mysterious", decided to deliver me the answer. 

This morning, taking a train, I found a free local newspaper at the station. Inside an article, I found the following thought of Bertolt Brecht. I report it for you:

"First of all they took away the Jewish,
but since I wasn't Jewish, I didn't matter.
Then they took away the communists,
but since I wasn't communist, I didn't mind.
Then they took away workers,
but since I wasn't a worker, I didn't mind.
Later they took away intellectuals,
but since I wasn't an intellectual, I didn't mind.
Then they followed with priests,
but since I wasn't a priest, I didn't mind.
Now they are coming for me,
but it is too much late"

Sorry to tell you it is too late, but this is what happens if you live inside indifference. This is the reason because the world is as it is. Our indifference built it. 

Now I understand why I feel so much frustrated until not to wish to write in my Blog.
